6. Recommended For Pregnancies
The many changes that women go through while pregnant is well documented. One of those changes is lack of comfort, even with furniture that was once perfect. Bean bags have become the most recommended furniture for pregnancy, joining memory foam compatible products as a huge competitor. Bean bags are great for sufferers of back pain and stiff joints. The way the chair conforms to the shape of the person on it is an advantage that few products have. Are you pregnant and have developed insomnia? Don’t be surprised if sitting in a bean bag puts you to sleep quicker than a bed. For maximum comfort, getting a large size is recommended for someone going through pregnancy.

5. Easier To Clean
Those nooks and crannies that are hard to reach in furniture are nonexistent for bean bags. It is one full, perfectly molded chair with no secret cracks or crevices.

4. You Can’t Argue About The Price
Pound for pound and size for size, bean bags are lower priced than other furniture. This is something to think about when adding it as a compliment to existing furniture in a home. Specialized chairs like lay-z-boys can be replaced by a bean bag to save a lot of money. The money you save buying a bean bag can go to improving other areas of your home. This is an often-overlooked pro of owning a bean bag. Buyers on a budget (and even buyers that like saving money) can get a lot out of bean bags as an additional component. It doesn’t have to be the star of the room it is in, and that only plays to the strengths of owning one.
3. Still Perfect For Children And Teens
Children and teens have kept the bean bag industry alive so that it can continue to evolve. A bean bag is a perfect companion for an age group that tends to be rough with traditional furniture. When you hear about a bean bag breaking, it is usually after years of abuse. Bean bags are tough and can hold up against the worst of treatment by the younger age groups. That feature leads to parents having to replace less broken items in their kid’s rooms. It is a win-win situation where one person gets the comfort they want and another gets the peace of mind they need. In the event that a bean bag breaks down, replacing it becomes a trivial affair.
2. Improved Quality For Babies
The general myth about bean bags and babies is that it was a bad mix. Parents worried that leaving their child on a bean bag would lead to suffocation. Many of the changes in the way bean bags are made make this unlikely, especially with breathable materials that circulate air constantly. There is even a line of specially made bean bag products for babies that is safe and recommended by hundreds of reviewers. If you can let your baby sit on normal furniture, then it is just as safe to put them on a bean bag. It is close to the ground, so sitting down and getting up becomes a more natural movement.
1. Highly Customizable
How many pieces of furniture from a brand name can you have personalized? The feature of personalization is not explored enough when filling a living area. Being adaptable to any style proves that bean bags are perfect for creative thinkers. Instead of searching vigorously for a piece of furniture that fits your mold, you can instead mold a bean bag as you wish.
